Here are some problems about subspaces that you need to try. 1. Let S be a non-empty set of vectors. We define S = { ~x R n : ~x · ~s = 0 for all ~s S } . (a) Show that S is a subspace. Note that S is not assumed to be a subspace. (b) Show that S ( S ) . 2. Suppose that V is a subspace of R n and that dim( V ) = p . Show that dim( V ) = n - p . 3. Suppose that V,W are subspaces of R n . We define V + W = { ~v + ~w : ~v

Show that V W is a subspace of R n . (b) Show that dim( V + W ) = dim( V ) + dim( W )-dim( V W ). (c) Show that V V = { ~ } 1...
